Marcus Wendel
Museums & Memorials
Sat Jul 15 15:36:15 2000


I'm working on a listing of all museums with German WW2 equipment.
The info I have so far is published here: http://www.skalman.nu/third-reich/museums.htm

Any additional info on related museums and/or memorials would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Complementing Marcus Wendel's Museums & Memorials page on his Third Reich Factbook website is Mikael Olrog's Preserved Axis Aircraft Throughout the World website.

Where the museums and memorials page looks at these facilities country by country, noting the aircraft in each museum or memorial, Mikael's website organizes by type of aircraft, engine, or missile, noting at which museums or other facility these are located at.

The address for Mikael's website is: http://www.axisaircraft.com

Regards,
Richard

Peter Evans' Luftwaffe Experten Mailing List website has a Worldwide Captive Luftwaffe webpage listing, by aircraft type, Luftwaffe aircraft in museums or other facilities around the world. In this regard, the listing is very similar to that provided in Mikael Olrog's Preserved Axis Aircraft Throughout the World website. The URL for the Worldwide Captive Luftwaffe webpage is:

http://www.experten.fsnet.co.uk/restore.html

The Hugo Junkers Homepage by Horst Zoeller presents information and photos of Remaining Junkers Aircraft Worldwide, including engines. There are numerous photos of Junkers aircraft and engines both in museums and at crash sites, some of them under water. The website URL is:

The website A Detailed Look At The Messerschmitt Bf109, by Matt C. Bole, presents exhaustive coverage of the Bf 109. The URL is:


http://members.aol.com/bf109gust/


Of particular interest to the preserved aircraft aficionado is an extensive listing of surviving Bf 109's, HA-1112's, and CS-199's.

Richard

Trevor Matthews
Me110G recovered from Neusidler See Austria
Thu Feb 22 19:35:29 2001


Searching for information on a Me110G shot down 1944 whilst operating from Parndorf Austria. The aircraft crashed in to the Neusiedler See about 40 kms from Vienna by
divers in late 1978. The remains are reported to be in a museum in Austria.

Many thanks for your help

I believe , but am not certain , that the 110G-2 was shot down by a P-38 , so must have been a daylight combat.
She is listed as being held at the 'Osterreichisces Luftfahrtmuseum' , described as 'substantial remains'

regards

Jon Gant claims for his Messerschmitt Bf 109 website that it is the most authoritative site on the Bf 109. Having now reviewed it, I believe he certainly is in competition for that title. His site address is:

http://www.bf109.com/frameset.html

The sections of the site are as follows:

Site Articles

Messerschmitt Bf 109: The Beginning - Very short article with 2 color drawings and a b&w side view drawing.

Bf 109 Armament, by Tony Williams - Discusses the various armaments used by the Bf 109. A link labelled "armament" at the bottom of the article leads to significantly more information.

Hans Dittes 'Black 2' - Includes 3 color photos.

Preservation of Leather Artifacts: US Air Force Museum

Bf 109 Replica Project - Jon's ambition to build a replica. A link to an article on the Dakota Bf 109 replica tells the story of this interesting project, along with several color photos.

Meeting Franz Stigler, by Markus and Ryan Muntener - Short interview with 1 color and 2 b&w photos.

Bf109 Variant Evolution Information - Production numbers and list of variants with short description of what was unique about each one. Includes photos and drawings of some of the variants.

Messerschmitt Bf 109 Foreign Variations - Useage by Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechoslovakia, and Spain. Some tabular data.

Performance Statistics of the Bf 109 - Technical and performance information for the Bf 109V1, V3, B-2, E-4, F-3, G-6, and K-4. Five b&w photos.

Engine Construction Information - Technical information on the DB 600, DB 601, and DB 605. One b&w drawing, 1 color photo. Link to article on DB 601 and DB 605 with technical information, b&w drawing, and cutaway line drawing.

Armament Information - Table and description of armament used, color photo of amunition, table by variant indicating armament used along with history of useage, and two phantom drawings of amunition.

Pilots Manuals - Acrobat downloadable manuals for the Bf 109E, G-2, and K-4, along with English translations of the G-2 and K-4 manuals.

A nice example of a 109 flypast, gives a great sense of the Daimler Benz's immense power.

Much of James Yeowell's Horrido! - The Luftwaffe Research Website either never existed or has been drastically curtailed. What remains essentially are tables of Bf 109 Stammkennzeichen and a listing of Bf 109 survivors & replicas. The website address is:

http://www.yeowell19.freeserve.co.uk/

The sections of interest on this site are:

What's New - The usual site updates. Unfortunately, the site has not been updated since Dec. 1999.

The Messerschmitt Bf 109 Research page

<U>Bf 109 Stammkennzeichen</U> - Tables of Stammkennzeichen for the following ranges:

Stammkennzeichen ??+AA - FL+??

Stammkennzeichen GA+GH - NW+KU

Stammkennzeichen PB+?? - WU+PF

<U>Bf 109 Survivors & Replicas</U> - Information covering aircraft in:

USA
Canada
UK
Finland
Norway
Germany
Poland
Switzerland
Italy
Yugoslavia
South Africa
Australia

Links - Fairly short and a bit out of date.

Regards,
Richard

The Virtual Aviation Museum website's strength is in its listing of aviation museums in Europe. While there is the occasional photo and minimal technical and historical detail, these are not the site's strenghts. The address of the site is:

http://www.luftfahrtmuseum.com/htmi/general/i.htm


Sections of Luftwaffe interest:


<U>Aircraft types</U>

Listed by name, designer, and category, a broad, but light depth coverage is made of much of the world's aircraft output.


<U>References</U>

Currently, there is only a listing of magazines worldwide. The intent is to add sections on famous aviators and a dictionary of aviation terms.

Benno Goethals
He.111 in Austria ?
Mon Jul 1 10:36:10 2002
194.237.142.30

Dear friends,

Mikael Olrog mentions on his excellent website ( http://www.axisaircraft.com ) that there could/should/might be a He.111 in Austria. A composite of the He.111-2P (w/n 5883) that was recoverd in Norway (1974) and the cockpitsection of a Casa 2.111B (c/n 150). Any ideas about current status and/or location ?

All information about other interesting places (WW2 aviation) to visit also most welcome.

MTIA

Benno
